Nathan's column: Putting in a personal request
Hello, Winter. It's me. Nathan. I think we need to talk. I can appreciate what you're doing, Winter. You got a bit of a late start last year, and now that you've dug in, you don't want to go. You're like a tick that way, and I can appreciate it. But Winter? I don't much care for...

Editorial: Good news in State of the City
It's State of the City season in Farmington and Rosemount. Rosemount mayor Bill Droste was scheduled to give his annual address Wednesday morning, right about the time this issue was going to print. Farmington Mayor Todd Larson will give his next Wednesday. There isn't usually a...

Student voices: Good and bad in last week's snow day
Last week I had the first snow day I have had in a few years. There is this myth that my school district doesn't give any snow days, but that has been proven wrong. In fact, my sophomore year is the only year I can remember in which I did not have either a snow day or a two-hour-delay. The...

Chuck's column: Teachers are fans of snow days too
It's the day after our first snow day this season when I'm writing this. I have a little bit of a reputation around here for being the boy who cried "Snow Day!" People have looked to my wisdom over the years well ahead of the decision being made at the district level. Sadly, I've...

Andrea's column: Hello, new readers
When my husband came in with the mail one day last week, he didn't greet me with a, "How was your day, Sweetie?" or even a, "Hi, I'm home." Instead, the first words out of his mouth were, "Wow! You should see your newspaper. It's really slick." It is indeed, I thought, as he set...

Nathan's column: A sort-of exciting proposal
Language is an ever-evolving thing. Our fast-moving culture requires some terms fall out of favor while others arise to take their place. Just as the modern teenager likely has little idea what a phonograph or a talkie might be, there are things we need words for today that never...

Editorial: Lessons come in many forms
There is more to school than what goes on in the classroom. Turning out good students takes more than pencils and books. Students learn lessons every day that will never show up on a standardized test. There are two good examples of that in this week's issue, and they take place...

Student voices: Kassie feels lucky to be learning
"Oh, you're a junior? What college are you going to go to? Have you gone on any visits? What are you majoring in? What is every plan for the rest of your life?" I feel like I get asked these questions every day. Maybe not to that extent, but it worries me that some people know exactly...

Chuck's column: Losing family hurts
A good friend of mine lost her mother this week. Mom was in her 90s and had lived a good full life, but I'm sure the loss is still a heavy one with her family. This weekend marks the 28th anniversary of my mother's passing also. Thursday, March 7, 1985. I remember it well, partly...

Andrea's column: Smooth sailing
A friend posted some photos on her Facebook page a few weeks ago. She was touring the luxury liner on which she and her husband will sail later this year. About the same time, the news was filled with unsettling stories about vacationers stranded and suffering on a similar vessel. I...

Nathan's column: A few feats worth watching
There are many reasons to watch sports. Sometimes it's for the drama of the games, the thrill of two teams engaged in a close competition down to the final seconds before, if Twitter is to be believed, the referees totally mess things up for one or the other. Other times it's for...

Merger means more news, not less local
By this point you've probably noticed there is something different about your local paper. It's bigger. Its layout has changed. And, oh yeah, there's a whole new city's worth of news in there. In some ways, this is a big change. The Farmington Independent and Rosemount Town Pages...

Student voices: Dance show has meant a lot

Chuck's column: Out sick
So, last week was a long week. Just sayin'. Despite the fact I was in my room for only three of the potential five days, it was a long week. The inevitable cold hit my head and body, and I was dealing with a tooth issue as well. I ended up having to miss two days of school. Back-to-back...

Andrea's column: Say it ain't so
Do you hear what I hear? The English language is being mangled by well-educated people who appear to be intelligent until they open their mouths. One of the most annoying examples is news people who drop the "g" at the end of a word. The worst culprit of this sloppy habit works for...
